It does look ready to strike. That critter is pretty well camouflaged down in the bloom. Good macro of the spider and great smooth pastel colours.

They like the Frangipani blossoms as they are camoflaged nicely

Good eye and a terrific capture. It looks like it is a difficult one to spot.

Yes they are well camouflaged once in the bloom.

Your regular frangipani blooms appear in a wholly different way here!
And they seem to be appreciated by a different life form.
Great use of that huge Sigma macro lens.
Really good shot!
